MIAMI TOWNSHIP, Ohio – Police say that a fatal shooting at an Ohio mall on Saturday started over an attempted robbery of athletic shoes.

According to WDTN, a shopper at the Dayton Mall shot and killed a 16-year-old boy who was in pursuit of a pair of limited edition athletic shoes.

Investigators say the slain teen and two other youths had gone to the mall for a shoe sale, but they apparently got there too late to buy the shoes they wanted.

That is when one of the juveniles produced a gun and demanded merchandise from two men outside the mall.

One of the men, who was licensed to carry a gun, pulled out a gun of his own and shot the teen.

The other two juveniles are currently being held in juvenile detention.
